A few weeks ago I wrote about utilizing the Duostack platform as a service to host a Node.js application on the cloud. Today Duostack announced they were joining forces with dotCloud, another platform as a service provider. Here is the announcement as I received it:
Duostack Announcement - May 24, 2011 We are pleased to announce that Duostack is joining forces with DotCloud.DotCloud is a Platform as a Service that provides unsurpassed flexibility. Developers have the freedom to assemble their own deployment environment by selecting stack components on DotCloud, instead of being restricted to a limited stack configuration typical of cloud platforms. Supported components include PHP, Ruby, Python, Perl, Java, Node.js, MySQL, Redis, RabbitMQ, Solr, PostgreSQL, and now MongoDB.As part of DotCloud, we will continue to raise the bar for cloud platforms and further our commitment as the best place to deploy apps.See the full acquisition announcement here:DotCloud Acquires Duostack, Expands Footprint in PaaS Market to Further "One Platform, Any Stack" VisionWhat does this mean for apps hosted on Duostack?Current Duostack developers will receive immediate access to DotCloud. Invite codes will be delivered by email.Apps currently hosted on Duostack will remain online through the end of June 2011. We will provide assistance for migrating apps to DotCloud. More information about the transition will be available this week.The Duostack name will be phased out. However, the best parts of the Duostack platform and the feedback from our beta program will be incorporated into DotCloud. This starts today as DotCloud launches support for MongoDB, and there is plenty more to come.We are very happy to welcome you to DotCloud.
